The practice of nursing is a complex function requiring knowledge derived from the basic and related applied sciences, technical skills, and personal aptitudes. The pre-professional curriculum, therefore, must provide students with sufficient information from the social and natural sciences to permit an effective undertaking of the nursing courses as well as of the lower and upper division courses in related disciplines and applied sciences. Further, it must facilitate the students' acquisition of a broad, liberal education, which forms the foundation for the subsequent program of professional education.
